Photo Hunters - Sad



Photo Hunters were looking for something "sad" this week.

These are photos of drawings done by my 11 year old boy, #1Son. His God-given talent amazes me. All of these characters express our theme to me in some way. Be it their mouths or eyes or just their faces, they all express sadness to me. (Don't worry - he draws plenty of "happy" too!)

Photo Hunt - Sad











We enjoy warmth because we have been cold. We appreciate light because we have been in darkness. By the same token, we can experience joy because we have known sadness.

Thanks to TNChick, there is more sadness here.

Wow he's very talented. Amazing skill for his age. I agree that the eyes express sadness and a few look angry. It's wonderful that he can get so much emotion into the faces.

I am excited to read through your blog. My husband and I have a 17 month old and would love to adopt from Ethiopia as well.. we had the privilege of going with World Vision to South Africa and Zimbabwe while I was pregnant and it changed our lives!
